Ben Simmons and Kevin Thompson have joined our fast-growing independent insurance agency.
Ben and Kevin are uniquely suited to guide people through the confusing maze of insurance options to find the right fit to protect them against the many risks and exposures in today’s environment.
Ben started his insurance career as a producer in 2010, focusing on landscape contractors, lawn maintenance, arborist, and construction clients. He will continue to use his experience in Preferred’s Construction Practice Group. Ben grew up in Silver Spring, Maryland and attended Springbrook High School (2003-2007), Salisbury University (2007-2009), and Montgomery College (2009-2010).
Kevin is new to the insurance industry and will jumpstart his career as a commercial lines producer, primarily focusing his efforts within Preferred’s Restaurant Practice Group. He was raised in Bethesda, Maryland and graduated from Gonzaga College High School in 2017 and Marquette University in 2021.
With the help of Ben and Kevin, we are looking forward to serving more clients. Preferred is one of the top five Erie Insurance agencies in the country and the largest in Virginia, which lets us offer Erie’s affordable coverage that other agencies simply do not have access to. Erie is an AM Best A+ rated carrier.
